OAK BROOK, IL – vAuto’s RealDeal is now available for dealership sales teams to use on Android phones, as well as Apple’s iPhone and iPad.
“We’re pleased to complete RealDeal’s integration across the top mobile platforms,” says Keith Jezek, vAuto president. “It gives our dealers and their sales teams more flexibility to present each vehicle’s RealDeal value story to customers and close more deals.”
Based on the philosophy that “documentation is the new negotiation,” RealDeal is a market-based price validation and merchandising system dealers use to educate buyers on the factors behind a used vehicle’s asking price. It compares a vehicle’s condition, mileage, equipment and other price factors with similar/identical units available in the marketplace. Dealers who use RealDeal find it builds transparency and trust with customers, resulting in more sales and fewer discounts from asking prices.
“The mobile integration takes RealDeal’s pricing credibility boost to a new level,” says dealer Marc Ray of Grogan’s Towne Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Toledo. “Our salespeople can even use a customer’s smartphone or iPad to look up and view RealDeal reports anywhere at the dealership—on the lot, the showroom floor or the service drive.”
